But what about packages like silo which didn't need really a fix and
where no one thaugh about adopting it until I mentioned it's removal
here? I think one or two people taking care of some important packages,
would still be good. But I have to say that your idea is also very good.
Maybe we can combine them to have a dir called limbo or something with
packages that lack a maintainer. And one or two people take care of this
packages, remove old cruft after some time an take care of some
important packages that are maybe classified as having no maintainer.
What do you think?
